The Pulse Exclusive — Rick Santorum: “Commander-in-Chief Is Not an Entry-Level Position”

While at APP’s Practical Federalism Forum in Hooksett, N.H., last weekend, I had the chance to catch up with Rick Santorum and ask him why he thinks he should be the GOP nominee in 2016:

The Pulse 2016: In 30 seconds or less, explain why Americans should vote for you.

Former Sen. Rick Santorum: Because commander-in-chief is not an entry-level position.  We need someone with experience who understands the nature of our enemy and has the experience to get the job done.  Someone who understands Washington and has been a fighter and a winner in Washington.  Who understands the cesspool, can clean it up, and can get the job done to move this country in the right direction.  And someone who’s been vetted, who you’re not going to have to worry about, who you can trust.

I’ve been there, and I’m going to stay exactly who I am, which is exactly what this country is looking for: an outsider who can get things done inside.
